New technology and digitisation contribute to sustainability

Port of Amsterdam’s activities are not limited to storage and transshipment. Technology, sustainability and digitisation are themselves a source of activity and have their impact on every transport or production activity. There are numerous opportunities and possibilities for a circular economy at the intersection of cargo, logistics, technology and digitisation. Circular energy generation and new green cargo flows are both a means and an end in terms of the way in which tomorrow’s port can serve as a basis for the circular Amsterdam metropolitan area. The ‘endless port’ explores its origin and redefines it in specific themes.
